Hazardous Materials & Waste Administration Testing

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) was created to manage the transportation of energy and other hazardous materials.

It’s their goal to ensure materials are transported safely.

These are typically everyday materials like natural gas, and they are transported by employees who operate, provide maintenance, and/or employ emergency-response when it comes to pipeline transportations.
